-photo jon huntsman got in the race. jim? >> i'm jon huntsman, and i'm running for president of the united states. we're not just choosing new we're not just choosing new leaders. we're choosing whether we are to be yesterday's story or tomorrow's. >> stephen: of course jon huntsman intends to be tomorrow's story. because for him, yesterday's story is, "hey, i work for barack obama." [laughter] and then huntsman perfectly described true americans. >> people secure in their rights and in love with their liberty. >> stephen: yes, i'm passionately in love with my liberty! i'd say i lust for it. [laughter] we have a very vigorous physical relationship. liberty and i. sometimes we role play. she dresses up as socialism and i spank her with a rolled-up constitution. [laughter] and even though she doesn't always reach happiness, she's assured me that just pursuing it is good enough. [laughter] [cheers and applause] so i like him. only problem is, huntsman has a face and a name. and right now, obama leads all specific republican candidates in the polls, even beating the romney. thankfully, the rep
. michelle bachmann is the only other candidate in double digits. bad news in the poll for jon huntsman. 2% of the vote. hundredsman can't catch a break in the endorsement game. his former chief of staff, utah congressman and future senator is endorsing mitt romney calling him more lectable. interesting number for you this morning in iowa. iowa republicans are souring on ethanol subsidies. in a new poll conducted by consumer voter research, for the iowa republican 47% of likely republican caucus goers have a very or somewhat positive view of a candidate who wants to cut ethanol subsidies. 24% have a negative reaction to that. finally overnight, tim pawlenty's numbers got higher. he's bringing in the daughter of mike huckabee to run his campaign. she helped put together that campaign in iowa for her dad to win the caucuses and finish second in the straw poll. in an effort to engage the young and tech savvy the president is holding a tweet up this afternoon. topic is the economy and jobs but the thousands of 140 character or less queries submitted versus the ask obama hash tag includes marij
for jon huntsman. new polling puts the former ambassador at the back of the pack which could be why the white house seems to be focussing on a different exgovernor. at the bloomberg breakfast david, senior obama advisor took aim at mitt romney calling him a world class distortionist. i was sitting there at that breakfast. you don't expect direct answers to questions, but this was just tloup out there -- thrown out there. clearly they think that he is the guy to beat. >> i think there's no question that romney's stronger today than most i think professional class folks would have thought he would have been two months ago. the fundraising isn't as small as it was last cycle for romney it's stronger than the rest of the field. he's in strong position in new hampshire. he's the front runner. test hooth unbeatable. right now i don't think we have a candidate that's putting a strong challenge to romney. i think that's mie perry has a chance. >> if you talk to white house people they say it's an uncertain field. they don't know what rick perry is going to do. they don't know the michele ba
happened when mitt romney and jon huntsman crossed path on the fourth of july parade in new hampshire. can you stand the excitement? that's next on the sideshow. you're watching "hardball" on msnbc. 8gg@รบ >>> back to "hardball" and now to the "sideshow" return of the know nothings. foreign policy experience. who needs it? here ' 2012 hopeful herman cain, never held elective office, yet on the "today" show show. >> and i'm already talking to national security people. former intelligence people. talking to former generals and people in the military, to begin to develop ideas about how i would deal with those crises that we're in. you don't need foreign policy experience to know who your friends are and who your enemies are and you don't need foreign policy experience to know that you don't tell your enemy what your next move is. >> what you don't know won't hurt you, we're getting what i don't know won't hurt you. it's preposterous, but maybe in this environment, mildly sellable. remember, sarah palin sells a version of it and millions are buying it. >>> next, when candidates collide. mitt
as well. tim pawlenty, 3%. jon huntsman, who has staked a lot of his campaign on winning new hampshire and had this big rollout with a lot of media coverage, only at 2% at this point. he is right there with herman cain and newt gingrich. surprising numbers there and very good numbers for mitt romney. we mentioned in that poll there, tim pawlenty, he also is not doing very well in that poll. he is hoping, obviously, to win iowa where is he staking all of his campaign and brought what is basically a pretty good political young gun on his squad, sarah huckabee sanders, the doubt of mike huckabee, who won the iowa caucuses back in 2008, she has joined his campaign. so you can say that tim pawlenty is looking for some huck luck. and sarah huckabee was a big part of the huckabee campaign and will be a big part of pawlenty's campaign. if pawlenty will do well in iowa, sarah huckabee will be a big bet to help him because right now, he needs all of the help he can get. >> jim acosta, thanks. your next political update in an hour. always get all of the political news 24/7 at cnn/politics.com. >>
